Born out of the legacy of our parent organisation-Manjari Foundation and Co-founders in building
institutions and community enterprises with bottom billions, MaHSIE is the first innovation hub of its kind to be established in the aspirational district of Dholpur. Over time, we seek to create a vibrant ecosystem that nurtures ideas and innovations emerging from the grassroots and ushers in a new wave of entrepreneurship in India’s untapped hinterland.
The vast majority of incubators and start-ups today are concentrated in major metropolitan cities. India needs more innovations focussing on the needs of the common man and designing the solutions with the community to reduce the feedback loop. Our experience working in the rural areas has taught us a valuable lesson - when people are mobilized into institutions, they hold the collective potential to bring lasting change to their communities.
We are not in the business of selection. We build capacities and nurture ideas, allowing the market to determine viability.
We hand-hold entrepreneurs, offering tools, training, guidance and resources to bring ideas to action.
We have built expertise in some sectors, yet we recognise that one size cannot fit all. Rather than sectors, we prioritise ideas that create impact.
We nurture the ideas for the bottom billions and build the prototype to develop the ecosystem for the bottom billions.
